Thomas withdraws from council race

By The Staff

My name is Richard Thomas. I am a member of the Eminence City Council. I want the residents to know that on Sept. 8, I officially withdrew my name as candidate for reelection to Eminence City Council.

When I took office, I told the residents that I would do the best job for them that I could. But when I stood up for what is right, I was voted down 5-1, often. Numerous threats have been made against me. I took my concerns to several government agencies, including the FBI. Only time will tell what will happen.

The main reason I withdrew my name is the residents are telling me that they want a whole new council. Withdrawing my name clears the deck for them to vote for candidates who have the courage to stand up for the residents.

I intend to work very hard to elect candidates who will stand up for what is right.
